Compiling and installing gcc 4.8.x

Sun Jan 05, 2014 8:36 pm

Hello

I've been trying to install gcc 4.8.2 on my raspberry, because i need it to compile something else (http://rathena.org/board/topic/78187-ra ... =raspberry)

I have tried many different ways, but i haven't succeeded so far... What i did so far:

-Make a clone from github and run the "make" command. This worked for a while, but then it began to give missing file errors. I tried fixing some of them, but then i noticed i began to change(duplicate) certain files that i don't think should be moved from position.

-I tried crosscompiling with eclipse, but this also gave me missing file errors.

Is there any guide that will work, or can anyone give me good instructions on how to get a working gcc 4.8 on my raspberry?

I don't care if i have to compile on my raspberry since it is on 24/7.

I found many guides on how to get gcc working on ubuntu, but that did not work. Also corsscompiling worked for a simple hello world program (but i did not run it on my raspberry, but at least it didn't give me errors), but for gcc 4.8 it didn't work.

Thanks in advance

Update /etc/apt/sources.list to have jessie wherever you've currently got wheezy

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo rpi-update
reboot

And the stock gcc that gets installed is:
ii gcc 4:4.8.2-1 armhf GNU C compiler

I never tought of actually upgrading my pi... that seems like the easiest way of doing this. I'm testing this right now, getting the packages ;)

Thanks!

This does not work for me. I followed the steps but my gcc version stayed the same:

gcc version 4.6.3 (Debian 4.6.3-14+rpi1)

I found that I still had the old compiler after following these steps as well. However, then doing "sudo apt-get install build-essential" got me the latest version of the compiler, which is now 4.9.2 at the time of writing.

You have resurrected an old thread ...

The current version of the compiler is 7.3 which I use on all my Pi's.

The pre-installed version is 6.3

So your 4.9.2 is very old

It wasn't (old) when this thread was started (and thus relevant):
